Angus was responsible for a terrible car accident that left paralyzed a young woman, Vicky Leoni, who had her life destroyed by what appeared a reckless accident. Now, years later, Vicky is wheel chair bound, and married to Ian McGowan, the fireman that saved her life. As it happened, she was at the wrong place, at the wrong time, when Angus offered to give her a ride, but get involved in a horrible accident. Vicky's own boyfriend, Craig, is in possession of a dark secret that will come out as the Cold Case team delves into the past.

Two of the Cold Case team are prominently featured, Thom Barry, and Sarah Brown who have personal issues unresolved.
